An SEC offensive lineman will reportedly be making the jump up north to finish out his college eligibility.

University of Alabama center Chad Lindsay recently visited Columbus and now appears to have made a decision.

The 6-2, 302-pound Texas native also looked at California, Michigan, Louisville and Oklahoma.

Lindsay started four games for Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide last season. He will join junior Jacoby Boren and redshirt freshman Billy Price in a battle for the Buckeyes’ starting center job.
